Violence and the State

Matt Killingsworth, Matthew Sussex, and Jan Pakulski


This book sets out to help unlock an intriguing interdisciplinary puzzle relating to violence: ‘what is the relationship between the instrumental uses of violence, including its main forms, and the willingness of states to employ it?’ In providing a counterweight to the notion that political violence has irrevocably changed in a globalised world, Violence and the State provides an original and innovative way to understand political violence across a range of discipline areas.

Keywords: The state, War, Conflict, Globalisation, Organised violence
